Item 8.01 Other Events
     On July 3, 2007, Coeur d’Alene Mines Corporation announced that it has completed its due diligence under the terms of the Merger Implementation Agreement with Bolnisi Gold NL which is part of a larger transaction that also includes Coeur’s acquisition of Palmarejo Silver and Gold Corporation. Coeur and Bolnisi expect to complete the transaction in the fourth quarter of 2007.
     The foregoing information does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the press release filed as an exhibit hereto.
Additional Information
     The proxy statement that Coeur plans to file with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and Canadian securities regulators and mail to its shareholders will contain information about Coeur, Bolnisi, Palmarejo, the Palmarejo Project, the proposed transaction and related matters. Shareholders are urged to read the proxy statement carefully when it is available, as it will contain important information that shareholders should consider before making a decision about the transaction. In addition to receiving the proxy statement from Coeur by mail, shareholders will also be able to obtain the proxy statement, as well as other filings containing information about Coeur, without charge, from the SEC’s website (www.sec.gov) and the Canadian securities regulators website (www.sedar.com) or, without charge, from Coeur. This report is neither a solicitation of a proxy, an offer to purchase, nor a solicitation of an offer to sell shares of Coeur. Coeur and its executive officers and directors may be deemed to be participants in the solicitation of proxies from Coeur’s shareholders with respect to the proposed transaction. The Coeur shares to be issued in the Transaction have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from registration requirements. Coeur intends to issue such Coeur shares pursuant to the exemption from registration set forth in Section 3(a)(10) of the Securities Act. Information regarding any interests that Coeur’s executive officers and directors may have in the transaction will be set forth in the proxy statement.

Forward-Looking Statements
     This Current Report on Form 8-K contains various “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 regarding the proposed acquisition of Bolnisi and Palmarejo by Coeur and the risks and uncertainties related to the occurrence of future events. These forward-looking statements are based on management’s current expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections about the current economic environment, the company and its industry. Certain factors that could cause actual events not to occur as expressed in the forward-looking statement include, but are not limited to, (i) the failure



to obtain the necessary approval by Coeur’s, Bolnisi’s, or Palmarejo’s shareholders, antitrust clearance and certain other governmental approvals in a timely manner or at all and (ii) the satisfaction of various other closing conditions contained in the Merger Implementation Agreements. Other potential risks and uncertainties are discussed in Coeur’s reports and other documents filed with the SEC from time to time. Coeur assumes no obligation to update the forward-looking information. Such forward-looking statements are based upon many estimates and assumptions and are inherently subject to significant economic and competitive uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond the control of Coeur’s management. Inclusion of such forward-looking statements herein should not be regarded as a representation by Coeur that the statements will prove to be correct.
